    Abstract

    Background: In every family physician's (FP) practice there is a number of patients whose type-2 diabetes is poorly controlled. The current literature shows inconclusive results regarding patient characteristics. The aim of this study is to identify patient-influenced factors raised by FPs which might be responsible for the quality of blood glucose control. Method: Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 20 FPs between July 2007 and March 2008. These were analysed by content in a multi-professional team employing inductive coding. Based on segments of text, codes were developed first, then structured into categories and finally summarized into key categories. Results: The result section focuses on select aspects taken from the following three key categories: (1) social resources and barriers, (2) attitudes towards and dealing with disease and illness and (3) personality. Conclusion: With the help of the interviewed FPs patient questionnaires were developed to examine to what extent patient-influenced factors correlate with the quality of blood glucose control.
